Broad Peak (originally called K3) is the 12th highest mountain in the world and is located on the border between China and Pakistan. The Broad Peak is part of the Gasherbrum massif and is located about 8 kilometers from K2. The Broad Peak was originally named after the designation of K2 as K3. On closer inspection, however, it was found that the summit was over 1.5 kilometers long, so very wide = “Broad Peak”. The Broad Peak is locally known as Faichan Kangri. The literal translation of “Broad Peak” in Phalchan Kangri is not accepted by the Baltis.

The first ascent of Broad Peak was made on June 9, 1957 by Fritz Wintersteller, Marcus Schmuck, Kurt Diemberger and Hermann Buhl from an Austrian expedition led by Marcus Schmuck. A first attempt by the team was made on May 29, when Fritz Wintersteller and Kurt Diemberger reached the forepeak (8,030 m). This was also achieved without the support of additional oxygen or high porters and without support from the team at the base camp.

Annotation:

The tour outlined here includes travel to and with Basecamp. Likewise the accommodation in the Basecamp. Thus, the mountain can be climbed in alpine style, so autonomous.

Of course it is possible to climb the mountain guided by a guide, with all the planning on the mountain itself, so all camps, catering, group material, etc. For more details, booking options and costs see “Services Optional: Full Service”.

Entire Organisation made by HÖHENBERGSTEIGEN and our very experienced partner Hunza Guides Pakistan. Pro climbers such as Simone Moro, Denis Urubko, David Lama trust and travel with our partner! Highest quality while on the mountain and intense experience = your safety!
